Shinedown’s renewed intensity and uplifting spirit are front and center on ATTENTION ATTENTION, an album that showcases the band’s heart and depth like never before. Their most personal album to date is a psychological journey that follows an individual from life’s lowest lows to the highest highs as anxieties dissipate and demons disappear. The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a poignant and enduring statement about humanity and our will to overcome struggles and thrive, touching on topics such as depression, addiction, facing fears, not being afraid to fail, social media negativity and the resolve of the human spirit. Given the deeply personal nature of the record, Shinedown went in-house for production for the first time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety. With a symphony of thought-provoking lyrics, stadium-size, explosive guitars, unpredictable rhythms, and cinematic flourishes, ATTENTION ATTENTIONushers in the band’s biggest and boldest chapter yet.
